All Things Horror Thread

I really liked Sinister. It has a typically wobbly final act but I’ve come to the conclusion that that’s mostly a me issue as I seem to have the same complaint about almost any horror. It must be incredibly difficult to keep the suspense up when you finally do the reveal in these films. I think Insidious was probably the worst example of this but it’s first two thirds weren’t that great either.

Didn’t you have COVID-18?

Humanoids From The Deep - (Netflix) THIS IS AWESOME! 1980 Roger Corman mash up of the Creature from the Black Lagoon and 80's slasher conventions. I can't stress how much fun I had with this. WARNING

So i saw Sinister at the cinema, wouldn't say it's the scariest movie ever made, but it was decent enough.

I can see why the audience members tested for that 'experiment' had high heart beats, as it had at least 6 loud jump scares.

Any fans of Blumhouse?

We got The Craft Legacy and Freaky coming out soon, the latter of which looks interesting.

I've only seen Abbott and Costello from that list so I'm hoping for a marathon. I'm sure they've aged poorly but they should be seen.

Watched The Children again last night with my Daughter who hadn’t seen It before.  Bloody hell it’s a good film.

Can I do a shameless plug - in the summer of 2019, some of my mates went to Albania and produced the remake of Castle Freak along with Barbara Crampton (and if you squint very hard, you can see the back of my head in a couple of scenes)

More of a reimagining, and to be honest it is slow to start with but the final half really ramps things up

you can definately tell the director has a background in prosthetics & if you are a fan of gore then this is for you

 

Availible on Shudder now

Fantastic, love me some Universal Horror, seen them all many a time with Dracula being my personal favorite, Lugosi's performance is simply spellbinding

I watched Saint Maud. After all the hype I was quite disappointed. Well made and all that, but it wasn't scary, creepy or particularly engaging. Definitely a good film in there somewhere but it was a bit meandering.

Anyone seen Psycho Goreman yet?

Think Wishmaster crossed with Power Rangers.

I can't wait to watch it. The trailer looks great. Where did you watch it? I couldn't find it digitally and they only format I found was a region-free Blu-Ray that isn't available until March.
